    Windows 10 Antimalware service executable slows Firefox launch, every time.

    As the title states, every time Firefox is launched the Anti-Malware service scans it. In the day and age where heuristics, and trusted files exist, this seems like a blantent attempt to sabotage other options.

    Graphics card Image Quality review

    Year's ago Image Quality was a part of every graphics test done, I know that advanced AF and AA has made image quality very close, but with the new HDR and other standards in place I would like to see Image Quality tests performed on a few of the newer graphics cards at different settings and...

    Best 120mm Radiator fans

    My fans are starting to make noise, and with the addition of the 7970 and summer temps my GPU is reaching 56C and then it starts to artifact a tiny bit, CPU is perfectly happy where its at. So who makes the best fans for moving air through a radiator? If it needs much more I will perhaps move...

    Upgrade time

    I recently managed to grab a Crosshair 4 890 board, 8GB or DDR3 2133RAM, and a 7970 with a custom BIOS 1250/1750 and block installed. I have paired this with my 1100T I managed to get it all upgraded, and am now testing my system off a windows 7 disk for stability and for memory issues...

    Gskill Ripjaws 2133 is using GDDR3?

    So I just got my new 8GB kit and it has K4W2G0846P-HC15 Samsung chips on it which are listed as GDDR3, what is the difference between DDR3 and GDDR3?

    1100T, 8 VS 16GB RAM, Price check on 4GB 1200Mhz DDR2 Kit

    Is there enough benefit in using 16GB RAM VS 8GB? I game, do some video and photo editing, occasionally play with music, the 4GB I have was helped tremendously by using SSD's and overclocking. I just bought a used Formula 4 890 board as my board is dying slowly and can't quite afford a whole...

    Gsync demo, kinda

    http://www.testufo.com/#test=stutter&demo=gsync Perhaps some user commentary from those who do have G-Sync setups? If this is accurate the edges get blurred together and I notice it. Looking through online recorded demo's of the technology it makes it tough to compare as the recording usually...

    Not my work, but I just transcoded 1080 *.MTS content in a fourth of the time and output equal quality mp4 video for free, as good if not better quality than handbrake.

    I killed it......

    On a side note mechanical hard disks suck....hard, and that is as nice as I can be. I booted my Win developer setup on my spare 2TB and installed my copy of 7 onto a new small partition. Back to the story though, drive in question is a OCZ Agility 3 120GB. I dismantled the drive and sure enough...

    Why not?

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130921 Seriously, the closest AMD comes in the same performance bracket is almost $200 more with no games. I know I will have to get brackets for my cooler and some sinks for the VRM's, but for the price difference........
